BlogHers Act is taking on a year-long initiative to make an impact in an area selected by BlogHer members. We voted and the topic selected was global healthcare, but since that is so broad, we’re trying to narrow it down some. Here’s a poll on sub-topics. You can select more than one…
Here’s the related post. My choices were clean water and training healthcare workers. I’m very passionate about the maternal healthcare issue, but I think that clean water supercedes it – if you have a bunch of babies that can’t drink clean water…
I think 3 action items for the campaign would be great:
1) Clean water campaign
2) Train healthcare workers
3) Provide birthing kits to communities
I think these could all 3 go together – the clean water is harder because it’s related to infrastructure, but the other two are more easily achieved… anyway this may be biting off more than we can chew, but raising awareness is the first step.
